The red berries of the Rowan have a five-pointed star (pentagram) from where it is attached to the stalk. The pentagram is an ancient symbol of protection and so many believe carrying the berries in a pocket will protect a person from harm.
Spiritually, some believe it protects from unwanted influences. The Rowan is thought to help a person distinguish help from harm, and friend from foe.
